My visit to Dru yoga has helped me grow
How to live my life and how to know
A simple act of caring and kindness can create an endless ripple
With goodness, well meaning and sincere feelings
A full heart for sharing and how to be more caring
Now more awake with my eyes wide open
It's helped a part of me which has lain dormant
It's been hidden because of life's torments
Looking at things now with new expectations
I can offer more value to my friends and relations
A happier and more contented person inside
Dru has helped provide me with some expertise
How to live life to the full, enriched and at peace
Poem from the Dru Yoga teacher training.
It has taught me to listen to my own body and the voice inside me that knows exactly what I should say and do. By taking the course, I know that my life will be full of abundance - I have it all inside. I feel I can connect to my pupils on a different level and I am able to help them on their life journey.
I enjoyed the waves of peace relaxation; lovely! Loved the kosha talk and flowing tree and pear tree. Loved the kosha talk and flowing tree and pear tree! The opportunity simply to 'be' in a class, rather than analysing and reflecting on teaching style, alignment points etc. The workshop was enjoyable, relaxed and designed to nurture us!
I first came on the youth course when I was 14 and I’ve just kept coming since then. The youth course has totally shaped who I am, my confidence and my identity, not only through the things we’ve learned but also from the amazing people I’ve met.
I enjoyed all of this workshop, but particularly EBR3 and the flowing tree. My overall impression was that this workshop was great; very peaceful and as a complete beginner, easy for me to do.
I feel uplifted and less burdened.
Keith was such an inspiration with his delicious dishes and I felt very nourished by our shared meal. I especially enjoyed the creamed carrots and will definitely be making it for my family. I was also reminded that it's not just about the cooking and that putting love and intent into it is what makes a real difference.
The teaching/learning has been fantastic, however there have been many other benefits on a more personal level that I hadn’t expected. Being immersed in yoga, with wonderful people in a beautiful setting has allowed me to ground myself, reflect and focus. Thank you and I can’t wait for module 2.
The Dru Youth courses have completely changed my life over the years I’ve come. They’ve given me the tools I need to stay positive, grounded, and handle life in ways I would never have been able to without it.
Starting my journey on the Dru Yoga Teacher Training Course was like all my dreams coming true and I cannot wait for the next module. Being amongst supportive, like-minded students and tutors was inspiring and confirmed to me that I can do this!!
I’m half way into my course and a long way into my heart.
Dru Yoga is suitable for all. It has lovely flowing movements that make you feel you are truly in tune with your body and mind. It leaves you feeling relaxed but vital, and fully aware of yourself.
I feel like this course is enabling me to discover myself, module by module - whether I wanted it or not deep soul searching is ensured and a new ‘me’ is emerging.
I liked the gradual building of positions into a sequence, so that you felt you had mastered each position before it became a sequence, which was very relaxing and confidence building.The workshop overall was friendly and welcoming, whatever level you are, whether you are a beginner or teacher. I was able to achieve positions I previously hadn't been able to because of the slow, precise instruction.
This was different to any yoga I've done before; mindful and meaningful.
Lovely teachers and lovely practices.
It has inspired me to be more disciplined with my practice and in addition, to think more deeply about its effect on me at all levels; I’ve learnt so much! The course has also enabled me to continue the process of unwinding, freeing up and reaching out to life!
I have gained more knowledge – I feel more confident. It’s given me a much wider vocabulary to take students into other koshas, to vary my teaching and experiment more.
I can’t say which is better: the amazing people here or the food!
“Incredible what a difference a week on a Dru Yoga retreat can do. Just experience it. Words cannot describe it.”
A great confidence builder/giver. A place to feel loved and nurtured. I felt the benefit I gained from working with others was fundamental and invaluable to the start of my learning process.
Dru Ayurveda & Yoga workshop:- A thoroughly enjoyable day, enlightening me to how I can work on my health and happiness with minimal effort - great for a kapha type!
I love the way the tutors introduce us to the energy body and the chakras when teaching the asanas. I feel as I have used the EBRs, asanas and relaxation over the last few months that I have changed as a person. I feel more confident and more in touch with my true self. It is a lovely journey.
Snowdonia is a great place to start your journey. The tuition and support team of previous students are so motivating that you feel totally supported in achieving your own goals.
If I could tell myself one thing when I started the course, it would be to Believe. To believe in me, in the training, in the higher goal. The course has given me confidence in myself and shown me that I know more than I think, and am more capable than I ever thought. Inspiring individual both tutors and students have given such support to me and it has been truly a life changing experience.
The masterclass was very informative and well presented and demonstrated. Can't fault it, a very enjoyable day!
Build a world you believe in.
This course has made me feel calmer, more in my body and more at peace with myself. I’ve discovered more about how my body works in these two weeks than in my four years of dance training!
Warm and welcoming facilitators with clear instructions and guidance.
Coherence / flow / good management / joy / serenity. Delighted to take part and learn some new and exciting interpretations of yoga. Very happy that you opened this masterclass out to non-Dru yoga teachers.
